Mayweather vs. Guerrero results: Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez…After defeating Robert Guerrero, Floyd Mayweather now looks ahead to a planned fight in September. The big fight that keeps being tossed around for that date is Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez. Will it happen? Fraser Coffeen of Bloody Elbow takes a look.
At this weekend’s May Day Mayweather vs. Guerrero PPV, Floyd Mayweather kept his unbeaten streak alive, easily dispatching challenger Robert Guerrero with a lopsided unanimous decision win. Though some tried to argue that Guerrero could make it a fight, there was never much doubt about this outcome, and the Mayweather win was close to a formality. In fact, even before the Guerrero fight began, talk was already about what would be next for the pound for pound king.
Mayweather has been clear about his plans to take his next fight in September, and though he suffered some form of hand injury in the Guerrero fight, he’s still looking to fight at that time. The big question is who will he face. And for the first time in a long time, the #1 name on everyone’s wish list is not Manny Pacquiao.
That’s the man fans are eager to see take on Mayweather. With the ship having sailed on the long discussed Mayweather vs. Pacquiao superfight, it’s now Mayweather vs. Canelo that has captured everyone’s interest. In last night’s post-fight interview, Mayweather was asked if he would indeed fight Canelo in September. His answer was predictably elusive. So what do we think – will we see Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez in September?
Not a chance.
